Relation : A Poem by Mohammed Shadab
Begins with indestructible bond,
Bringing cheers to life and gets tied in unknown relations.
Being pet for grandma,
Steps into a teenage with impossible attitude,
As well a brother to console.
Then seeks for a friend to understand him.
Later he straps himself in a bond of ever,
By grasping the value of trustworthy relation.
He retires in life,
Depending on stick he owns
Then again a last relation is joined.
RELATION: it is the heading of the poem, this poem tells you that how a man passes through his life taking, managing and handling the relations.
BEGINS WITH INDESTRUCTIBLE BOND;
The first line of the poem tells you that when we are born before that itself we start making relations. The first relation is the mother and the father which is unbreakable. Even if a child gets separated from parents still the bond between them remains untouched. No one can break it and it is for ever till the death.
BRINGING CHEERS TO LIFE AND GETS TIED IN UNKNOWN RELATIONS;
When we are born our family throws a party in happiness of a child born at that time all the relatives are invited, friends, and many more people. At that time the child who is not even able to speak or walk gets tied in many relations which even he doesn’t know them as (he becomes a nephew, a son, a grandson, cousin brother, brother, and many become his uncle, aunty, chacha , chachi (his fathers brother). Even he does not know the meaning of relation but he becomes a part of it.
BEING PET FOR GRANDMA;
Here it is common for everyone when we are of 3-6 yrs old of age our grand parents love us the most. The care us more than any one in this world may be more than our parents as it is their wish to become grandparents has come true.
STEPS INTO TEENAGE WITH IMPOSSIBLE ATTITUDE;
It means after our age of 12 we step into teenage and at that time even we don’t that much care about our parents or anybody else. And all we are in a friendship mood that we need friends. And we think friends are they best. And our attitude at that time like hell and every possible we tell it is impossible and every impossible thing we make it as silly. We don’t care who died fighting for us(freedom fighter) who saved us , they tell social is a boring thing as they don’t care about them. if a country makes law for people they tell who cares it is governments problem…etc.
AS WELL A BROTHER TO CONSOLE;
On the other hand if even they don’t care for parents really they care for their brother or sister. They are always their to support them in any way correct or wrong. Here it is motioned ‘a brother to console’ means he is always like a wall in front of his brother or sister to protect them to save them. To support them to help them etc.
THEN SEEK’S FOR A FRIEND TO UNDERSTAND HIM;
After this teenage he steps into adultery but still unable to understand the ——– upon him. Now he is in search of a friend , a partner of life but still he don’t know what is called trusted relation. He thinks trusted relation as love and seeks for a partner that he can share his emotions, happiness, sadness, love, etc..
LATER HE STRAPES HIMSELF IN A BOND OF EVER, BY GRASPING THE VALUE OF TRUSTWORTHY RELATION;
Now he becomes responsible now he is not careless like before. He understands the all meaning of relation a true relation. Now its time for his marriage and to get settle down in his life rather than roaming to find a true love. He settles down in life not simply but by understanding the value of a true relation a trustworthy relation on whom he ca trust and on whom the other person can have faith. He gets married by himself no pressure on him or anything else like that. There only 3 relation for ever that is mother , father, and wife. At that time he marries his parents become old so only a relation of wife will support him in his life of difficulty, happiness, sadness etc..
HE RETIRES IN LIFE, DEPENDING ON THE STICK HE OWNS;
Here now he becomes old unable to earn or run in race of life. Now he prepares himself to the death he know that death is near and tries to do how much good deeds he can do. Now as he can’t earn the money how will he live. He depends on his children who he has made capable to do work to earn money by educating them, by feeding them when he was young. When he was young he took care of the children and now when he became old children will take care of him. Here stick means the children.
THEN AGAIN A LAST RELATION IS JOINED FOR EVER AND EVER;
Again a very last relation is joined with death. When he born he knows that he is going to die one day but when he doesn’t know that. In life we start preparing for our self for death from the time we know it is there and we try to do all good deeds but especially when he becomes old he tries to do maximum good deeds.
